Navionics has released a software development kit (SDK) which enables iOS app developers to integrate the world’s best charts within their mobile apps.
Navionics provides a complete cartography resource encompassing depth data in up to 1 ft/0.5 m HD contours, spot soundings, detailed shorelines, navigational objects and much more, all updated daily, which can enrich the user experience of apps designed for sailing, fishing, diving and more.
Several applications will soon offer Navionics charts to enhance functionality, such as ProNav’s trolling motor route creation, Pro Angler’s fishing locations, Sail Timer’s tack display, AnemoTracker’s wind data and Siren Marine’s vessel tracker. To see Navionics Nautical Chart and SonarChart™ for marine areas and lakes within these apps and others, users simply need to purchase the Navionics Boating app or renew their Navionics+ subscription, if expired.
The free mobile SDK presents opportunities for integration of Navionics cartography in many areas, such recreational, commercial, educational and conservation. For more information and to request the SDK, go to https://developers.navionics.com/.
